Product Overview

The Arts and Crafts movement has never gone out of fashion in America. Since its birth at the turn of the century, the Arts and Crafts style, with its uncompromising workmanship and simple elegance, has innovated home design. Today, the genre is experiencing a dramatic renaissance, and its admirers are bringing the timeless beauty of the style into their homes with renewed enthusiasm. In the Arts & Crafts Style illustrates this exciting movement, taking the reader on a compelling and inspirational visual journey. Each chapter of this book examines a different facet of this aesthetic, beginning with its European origins and proceeding to American classics, including California's Mission style. The book highlights the work of such influential designers as Gustav Stickley, L & J.G. Stickley, Charles Voysey, Greene & Greene, George Ohr, Tiffany, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Charles Rohlfs, among others, and features Arts and Crafts standards, such as the Morris chair, the Stickley settle, the Tiffany lamp, and the Fulper bowl, all displayed in a variety of contemporary interiors. The book concludes with an extensive source listing of dealers, auctioneers, and contemporary cabinetmakers and artisans that carry or produce furnishings in the Arts and Crafts style. With radiant, original photography and engaging text, In the Arts & Crafts Style reveals a world that has remained unexplored until now: the actual homes of enthusiasts who live with this enduring beauty every day.
